Wired Glove

Wired glove is another name for a Data Glove, which is a form of I/O device. Data gloves fit over the hands of a person in VR, and allow tactile feedback. Pressure pads typically provide force feedback - if the person picks up a virtual object, or runs their hand along a virtual surface, the data gloves allow them to feel it as if it was physically against their hands.
